The Sir Eric Rideal Lecture honours an individual who has made a sustained and distinguished contribution to colloid and interface science in the UK and a one-day scientific meeting is organised around the winner. The 2023 awardee is Dr Andrew Howe from AQDOT Ltd.

This one-day symposium will feature invited lectures to describe exciting soft matter science and show how important quality research insights are in developing many industrial applications. The meeting will conclude with Dr Howe’s Rideal award lecture.


This meeting should bring together chemists, chemical engineers and physicists interested in the fundamentals of polymer colloids research, as well as those interested in the preparation, analysis and application of these materials. One of the aims of the meeting is to allow young researchers and students a unique platform to get first-hand information from world-renowned scientists on topics of prime importance in colloid science.  Attendees can have their work featured in the lunchtime poster session.

The programme will be confirmed in due course.
